Ms. Shepard's knowledge and appreciation for African textiles and crafts is shown with style throughout this book. The craft instructions are clear and easy to follow (even for a novice craftsperson like myself!) The photographs are well done also, they act as real motivators to try some of these great decorating ideas. How refreshing to see a crafts and decorating book with culturally diverse appeal!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This is a refreshing change from the other craft and decorating books out there! The descriptions and photos of how the fabrics are made are really informative. I liked the way it combines history with creative ideas for using the fabrics. Plus, the listing of where to find mudcloth and other materials is a big help. I'm working on the home office projects now and they're easier than they look in the end result. Great step-by step instructions.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Once I saw the title of this book, I knew I could not pass it up. I was not disappointed! Being a weekend crafter and sewer, I like to find quick and easy ways to accent my home, clothing and gifts. It's all here in African Accents. After reading the book I learned things I did not know about the history and art of West African designs and fabrics. African Accents is a 'must read' for those interested in ethnically diverse and fun ways to decorate the home and create unique gifts and crafts.Was this review helpful?
